thanks for that Brian.
looked at link on sevice sheets and the 2 screws hold the current collectors in place on the motor frame but dont release the motor etc.i feel that the bottom plate (under the axles) needs to be removed to allow access from under the motor.i feel that a tool is reqd to remove this plate.Thanks anyhow and i will keep investigating.its good having access to the service sheets.

No specialist tools are required to work on locos unless you include a gear puller. Things either unscrew or unclip.
